These fisheries offer a range of tasty and feisty fish to catch, with Reds, Trout, and Snook leading the way. But, there’s much more to catch, and Capt. Kevin will help you make the most out of your trip.
Year round, these waters prove to be lucrative fishing spots, but to have a blast, you will need someone who’s versed in getting the fish to bite. Capt. Kevin has accommodated numerous repeat customers and will cater to novice and pro anglers with same professionalism.
You will join Kevin and launch into Lower Laguna Madre waters. There, you will be able to target Red Drum, Black Drum, Trout, Flounder, Jack Crevalle, Spanish Mackerel, Snook, Mangrove Snapper, and more. Capt. Kevin will supply the light tackle to get around these beauties, and it is included in the trip rates.
